“Hotel Fita, a great choice for Amsterdam”
Reviewed 3 May 2014

Our visit to Amsterdam was enhanced by our stay at Fita. It's location and access to the museum district, canal tours and transportation is excellent. The stay was friendly and very helpful. Every morning we enjoyed breakfast pancakes freshly prepared for us. We highly recommend Hotel Fita as choice for Amsterdam.

This is a small hotel run by a charming group of young people. Although it isn't a luxury hotel, it offers great value, especially if you plan to visit the museum district. I can't say enough about helpfulness of the staff, as well as the delicious pancakes they cook for breakfast. The rooms are large enough to be comfortable. The location is quiet, yet only a stone's throw from the Van Gogh museum as well as the central tram 5 line. The picture of the remodeled lobby looks great! (It was under construction during our visit.)

Spent four nights at the Hotel Fita at the beginning of April for our first visit to Amsterdam. It is situated in a quiet, attractive part of the city close to the main museum area and the large green spaces of Vondelpark and Museumplein. It is also close to the excellent Amsterdam transport system which we used during our stay having bought a three day pass for 16 Euros each which we considered excellent value. There are also plenty of really good places to eat within easy walking distance.

The Fita team are all enthusiastic, helpful and friendly and were a very good source of information about sightseeing and eating out. Our spacious room on the first floor had a large bay window overlooking a pedestrian thoroughfare, a comfortable bed and a decent sized well equipped bathroom. The stairs throughout the building are steeper than we are used to in the UK which is good for the thighs but there is a small lift to all the floors if needed. The breakfast room on the lower ground floor is compact and gets quite crowded if all the residents descend at the same time. However the choice of food is quite varied and the warm Dutch pancakes, prepared to order, are definitely worth a try.

We enjoyed our stay very much and would certainly use the hotel again if we return to Amsterdam.

I don't think we could've picked a better hotel than this one for my first time in Amsterdam.

Less than a minute's walk from the Van Gogh museum, two minutes further from the Rijksmuseum and Vondelpark, near to the canal for boat rides, across the road from two tram lines which run to Amsterdam Centraal train station, the location was absolutely ideal. The staff at this family-run hotel are lovely - we arrived an hour before check-in, they were happy to let us leave our luggage with them as we explored for a while (with a map helpfully provided by the girl at reception, with routes, attractions and transport circled for us). Upon our return, our bags were waiting in our room for us.

The room itself was spacious and comfortable, the bathroom is huge and the free Nespresso-esque coffee machine is a welcome addition, particularly if you return to the hotel after several hours shopping and need a pick-me-up before you head back out for the evening/night!

Interestingly for a continental European hotel, the fantastic breakfast buffet includes bacon and eggs - which will please the British Tourists who insist on full English garb when they travel abroad. The more broad-minded traveller will be very happy with their selection of cheeses, pastries and fruits, and in particular the homemade cooked-to-order pancakes, which are delicious.

I would highly recommend this recommend this hotel to anyone visiting Amsterdam, but particularly those planning on spending their times in museums and on the canals. It made my stay in the city all the more enjoyable.

This family run boutique hotel offers the personal touch and local flavour so lacking in larger establishments. The room was attractively decorated, spotlessly clean, spacious, with a view onto the quiet pedestrian area below. A safe, bathroom with bath, nespresso machine. The room was very welcoming to return to after the day's sightseeing. The breakfast was excellent with a variety of cereals, nuts, seeds, dried and fresh fruits, yoghurt, various breads and cheese. Scrambled egg and bacon available at the buffet and freshly made pancakes ( French style crepes) offered. The breakfast room is light and colourful and the staff attentive and cheerful. The hotel is a 20 euro taxi ride from the train station but on our return we took the tram; very easy. The Van Gogh museum is is just around the corner and the Rijksmuseum close by. The Blue Boat canal tours are 5 minutes away and saves having to go the station where so many other boats start their tours. Roel was able to make helpful suggestions for restaurants and we had good meals at the Seafood Bar and Hap Hmm both close and not in the tourist eating area. The hotel is deserving of its reputation and reasonably priced for Amsterdam. Roel went out of his way to make us welcome and comfortable.

Second stay at Hotel Fita. Here's why: perfect location (4 museums, great concert hall, big Vondelpark, supermarket, restaurants, trams 2 and 5 that will take you almost everywhere...), pleasant neighbourhood, quiet room (not much traffic on the street, pedestrian passage and playground for children from nearby school), very friendly staff and enthusiastic young manager who will bend over backwards to make your stay as pleasant as possible. He's working on adding 5 rooms on the top floor, which is good news because the current 15 rooms get booked so quickly and because the hotel will still be small and cosy. His passion for his job is so contagious that I asked to have a look at them and Hotel Fita fans, you have something to look forward to because they'll be very cute and practical ensuite (shower) rooms when they're finished. I'll be back next year for the outstanding museums and Concertgebouw and also because it's so interesting to see how this hardworking young man's business is evolving.

Room Tip: Solo traveler, light sleeper more interested in quietness than view, thought room 38 was perfect
